Comedian Amy Schumer shocked the world last month when she married her chef boyfriend Chris Fischer.  Although they are enjoying the newlywed life right now, don’t expect her to change her last name to his anytime soon… or ever. Her reasoning?  She doesn’t want to be confused with Amy Fischer, the “Long Island Lolita” who made headlines in the early 90’s for shooting Mary Jo Buttafuoco amid her scandalous affair with her husband Joey.  Yikes!

Gordon asked her "“Are you still Amy Schumer or are you Amy Fischer now?”  Her response? "I’m not Amy Fischer! Do you remember who Amy Fischer is? The Long Island Lolita.”

Amy Fischer (not Schumer) was 17-years-old when she shot Mary Jo on the front porch of her Long Island home that she shared with her husband Joey back in 1992.  Mary survived the attack, and Amy served seven years in jail for assault.

So this may explain why Amy (Schumer this time around) wants to keep her name that she’s had since birth to avoid any awkwardness moving forward.  "No, I’m keeping my last name—I’m keeping your last name,” she assured her father.
